National Eucharistic Congress logoWhile there is an impressive list of emcees, speakers and presenters lined up for the National Eucharistic Congress (NEC) in Indianapolis on July 17-21 (see, the event offers numerous daily prayer and sacramental opportunities as well.

Each day’s schedule begins with morning Mass. Confession will be available each day, as well as opportunities for adoration.

Additionally, St. John the Evangelist Church—which is directly across from the Indiana Convention Center where many of the NEC events will take place—will serve as a perpetual adoration chapel throughout the course of the five-day congress.

“St. John the Evangelist Parish is super excited to be in the heart of the Eucharistic Congress as the perpetual adoration chapel in July,” says Father Rick Nagel, the parish pastor. “It will be an amazing encounter with Jesus as the Blessed Sacrament is brought to St. John’s from all parts of the United States in four eucharistic processions. This is arguably the most important event in the history of our nation as, now more than ever, Jesus wants to bring his people home to his holy Church.” †
